Is your Emotionally Intelligent Quotient High Enough to Deal with the COVID Stress?

When I came across this article, I couldn’t help but notice its perfect timing. Amid the COVID-19 lockdown, Work From Home and Social Distancing are posing as challenges of unprecedented magnitude.

This is an extremely stressful situation and the need for emotional intelligence as a coping mechanism has been highlighted.

The first step is Self – Awareness which eventually leads to Self – Management. Introspection and Organizing one’s thoughts help us understand and analyze our trigger points.

Additionally, ability to look at a situation you are involved in from a third person’s perspective is a sign of an emotionally intelligent person.

This doesn’t imply that people with higher EQ are immune to Stress, it only means that they are better equipped to handle it.

It is important to note that Emotional Intelligence doesn’t develop overnight, to help you tap this potential and practice it in a consistent manner.

At SHRD, Emotional Intelligence forms the foundation on which our programs on Personal Transformation rest.
